Atlanta has emerged as a serious barbecue city.
In this episode of the accessAtlanta podcast, AJC food and dining editor Ligaya Figueras sat down with Jim Auchmutey, author of “Smokelore: A Short History of Barbecue in America,” about historic Atlanta barbecue landmarks and regional barbecue styles influencing local restaurants.
Also, award-winning food writer and critic Wendell Brock joined Ligaya to discuss their barbecue road trip, as well as the various sauces, sides, pies, banana pudding - and yes, Brunswick stew - they came across.
Plus, host Shane Harrison shares things to do in Atlanta during the next 10 days, including Swing into Spring Festival and May-retta Days Festival.
